THICKER FULLER NATURAL LASHES - The Grown Up Edit   .jpg

All women desire longer, thicker lashes. Having dramatic lashes with length and volume makes your eyes appear bigger and can transform your face instantly. If you’re like me and don’t want to use lash extensions or have the time to apply false lashes every day, then our video tutorial will show you how to make the most of your own. I can talk you through a few easy steps that will help you achieve luscious lashes that look thicker and fuller.

CURL YOUR LASHES
This is the first step to making your lashes appear longer and thicker. My favourite eyelash curler is SHU EUMURA, unfortunately they’re no longer stocking it in the UK. I’m now on the hunt for the next best thing, until then there are some still available in the link provided. Begin by placing the curler at the base of your eyelashes and hold for 3 seconds. Next, move the curler out to the middle of your lashes and hold for another 3 seconds.

USE GEL LINER
I use COSMETICS À LA CARTE Outliner in sable. Use a black gel liner if you have dark eyes or lashes. To apply, use an angled eyeliner brush and dip it into the eyeliner. Apply the liner to the upper lash line, this darkens the base of your eyelashes making them appear thicker. Make the line as thin as you can, don’t worry if the line isn’t perfect, you can always clean it up with cotton bud.

APPLY KOHL PENCIL TO YOUR UPPER WATERLINE
The next step for creating those fuller lashes is to apply a dark brown kohl pencil to the inside of the upper water line. My favourite is No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil in brown, it’s waterproof and will last 12 hours. This can feel a little awkward at first, persevere at it, your lashes will definitely appear thicker and it will enhance your eye shape. Your eyes will look wider, brighter and more impactful.

APPLY MASCARA
My go-to mascara at the minute is TOO FACED Better Than Sex. It has a creamy formula for long-lasting, intense volume. Pop the brush onto your lashes as close to the root as you can. Give the brush a good wiggle back and forth, this will make sure your mascara gets right to the root. Next gently roll the brush from root to tip. For a more extreme false lash effect, apply two or more coats. I find it easier to not wait for each coat of mascara to dry between coats.  

USE CASTOR OIL
Castor Oil works by strengthening and hydrating the eyelashes and thereby providing an environment that allows eyelashes to grow without any crisis. Many people are of the opinion that routine usage of castor oil has incredibly improved the quality of their eyelashes. Apply before bed by dipping a cotton bud or eyeliner brush in to the oil and apply to the baseline of your lashes. One of my favourites is Naissance Cold Pressed Castor Oil.
